Ceramics Workshop: Intensive 1 Full Day

Try your hand at a wide range of ceramics techniques at this pottery class in London.

6 hours Class size 1 to 8     label £200

Looking to get a head start in your new ceramics hobby? This all-day pottery workshop in South Bermondsey is a brilliant starting point for beginners! Hosted by local ceramics experts, you'll dive into the world of working with clay, learning a whole host of useful techniques throughout the day.

Beginning with a tour of your hosts' welcoming studio space, you'll enjoy some expert demonstrations of all the materials and techniques you'll be using throughout the day, including extruding clay into coils, Slip casting mould, slab building and more!

Once you're familiar with all your equipment, it'll be your turn to put those hands to work as you try these time-honoured techniques for yourself. Don't worry if you need a hand, as your friendly hosts will be behind you every step of the way to offer guidance and advice to help your ceramics really shine.

Once this six-hour session is over, leave your ceramics in your hosts' capable hands. They'll then be professionally glazed before being fired in a kiln, giving each piece a truly personalised finish.

Please note: due to the time it takes to glaze and fire each piece, your works will be ready for collection from the studio within 3 weeks. Alternatively, they can be shipped to you within the UK for a cost of £15/person.

Had a full intensive ceramic class and it was absolutely fantastic!
We learned a lot of techniques such as throwing, slab work and more!
The teacher was amazing! Taught us all the best ways to approach each technique, explained all the tools and materials and supported us throughout the whole workshop.
The place was a dream studio! Super artsy, very spacious and we created loooots of pieces to collect in a couple of weeks.
Would definitely recommend this course

Stephanie was incredible and the session was dreamy. We learned a great deal and would feel a lot more confident about everything ceramics now. It was a birthday gift for a friend and he absolutely loved it.
